Actor Charlie Sheen called into the "The Dan Patrick Show" on Monday and talked about a wide-range of topics including his recent pep talk to the UCLA baseball team as well as all the news surrounding him.

On how he lost his voice

"Well, I went back to work and I was banging on the stage door saying, 'where's everybody?' I don't know what happened, I guess they are closed. Nobody told me, I just figured I would go back to work because I'm ready. We are on a forced hiatus. They said, "You get ready, I'll get ready," and I got ready and went back and nobody is there. I don't know what to tell you, Dan, nobody is there."

On when he is scheduled to go back to shooting "Two and a Half Men"

"I believe August of 2014 at this pace. I don't know, its supposed to be the 28th or the 29th. That's it, the 29th on a non-leap year."

On his pep talk to the UCLA baseball team

"Dude, check it right. So, we finish and I'm walking off and Coach says 'Hey Charles can you run over and give the team a pep talk?' And I looked and there they all are. So, it wasn't like, "No coach, I can't." There wasn't like I had an option. So I had like 30 feet to come up with something brilliant. I thought let's get down to the brass tacks and tell these kids what its all about. Make it quick and then just run. Then I just realized what props I was holding. I had a bottle of chocolate milk, I had rumors that I have had problems with crack. And it just came out of me like poetry."
